#snakesaliveuk can provide snakes and other reptiles along with a handler who has worked for many years providing different educational programs for children and adults of all ages and abilities we also provide confidence building sessions, help beat phobias, and animal assisted therapy (AAT) sessions. Being a country of animal lovers we all know the positive effects they can have on our lives but not everybody has the time, space or ability to keep their own animal. That’s why us bringing the animal to you works so well. Especially in schools, care homes and hospitals.
